Kimo, The Hawaiian Cat, is the illustrated true story of how an abandoned feral/community cat, begging for food from tourists on a hiking trail on the island of Kauai, found a loving forever indoor home. The story is told from Kimo's point of view. A tourist contacted the Kauai-based feral/community welfare organization, Kauai Community Cat Project, and that organization arranged to trap and capture the kitten and then bring it back to someone who wanted to adopt it. The person who adopted the kitten named him Kimo, and he became an indoor-only cat, much loved by the woman who adopted him. Kimo grew up to become a beloved member of his mother's multi-cat household, and was the first feral kitty she adopted. Kimo later became big brother and protector to other rescued kitties his mother brought into her expanding family of cats. Kimo's story is about love and family values, and about how an abandoned feral/community cat can become a wonderful and much-loved indoor pet.
